Land to be available for residents soon – City fathers

The City of Windhoek recently had a ground breaking ceremony, where 79 serviced plots valued at N$46.9 million were unveiled in Khomasdal Extension 16.

Lydia Amutenya, CoW Public Relations Officer told the Economist that the houses that are to be build will be made available to those on their waiting list if they qualify.

According to her, the value of the houses including the property should not be more than N$800,000 and the Oluzizi-Ambixex Joint Venture is set to do the construction.

“One should earn less than N$8000 to be placed on our housing waiting list and the sale of the houses to applicants on the waiting list is being processed and will be announced soon,” she added.

She said that the successful people will be notified through the local daily newspaper and that approval has been granted pending other verifications such as searches at the Deeds Office to determine if they already own properties in Windhoek, because the requirement for this sale is strictly for first time buyers only.

The City also said it should be noted that the land delivery process, in particular the sale of land to meet the demand for serviced land, has become a critical component of the City’s revenue enhancement effort with the vie to meet the ever increasing cost in providing basic services.
